Underground utility mapping is a system used to detect the location of various public utilities such as sewers, electric cables, telecoms cables, and gas & water mains. This is done with the help of electromagnetic induction (EMI), ground penetrating radar (GPR), and others. It is imperative to locate underground utilities on the site of construction. Underground utility mapping is undertaken by the various verticals such as oil and gas, electricity, government and public safety, construction, telecommunication, and others.

Market Scope and Structure Analysis

Rise in urbanization, infrastructural development, and increase in construction activities propel the growth in demand for underground utility mapping. Rise in initiatives by the government and increased focus on the implementation of underground utility mapping is another important factor that fosters the growth of the market. Upsurge in the demand for 3D innovations has further generated lucrative growth opportunities for the underground utility mapping market. Rise in safety concerns for the underground utilities further boost the market growth rate.

However, the high maintenance costs associated with mapping gadgets and devices pose a major challenge toward the market growth. Dearth of skilled personnel or trained professionals are expected to further worsen the situation for the market and derail the market growth rate.

COVID-19 Impact analysis

COVID-19 pandemic has shut down the production of various products in the underground utility mapping market attributed to the lockdown in countries worldwide. This has hampered the growth of underground utility mapping from the last few months and is likely to continue during 2021.

COVID-19 has already affected the sales of underground utility mapping market in the first quarter of 2021 and is anticipated to cause a negative impact on the market growth throughout the year.

The major demand for underground utility mapping was previously noticed from giant manufacturing countries including the U.S., Germany, Italy, UK, and China, which are negatively affected by the spread of the coronavirus, thereby declining the demand for underground utility mapping.

Further, potential impact of the lockdown is currently vague and financial recovery of companies is totally based on its cash reserves. Underground utility mapping manufacturers can afford a full lockdown only for a few months, after which the players have to modify their investment plans. For instance, various players in the market halted their production activities for several weeks to reduce the expenses. Whereas few players also adopted employee lay-offs to sustain during the COVID-19 health crisis

Underground utility mapping market are expected to focus on protecting their workforce, operations, and supply chains to respond toward immediate crises and find new ways of working after COVID-19. For instance, provision of sanitizers, maintaining social distancing, as well as ensuring the vaccination of every employee in the company can assist in promoting the health & safety of the workforce.

Top Impacting Factors

Rise in the level of construction activities is responsible for fostering the market growth in this region. Increase in exploration of shale gas sites is another important factor that acts as a market growth determinant. Rise in investments in the transportation, especially railways infrastructure boosts the growth of the underground utility mapping market. Ground-penetrating radar (GPR) is the method of choice for utility mapping, which emits directional electromagnetic waves in the MHz and GHz range. GPR uses the electromagnetic signal to return to identify where underground utility infrastructure is located. The GPR technology is significantly accurate, and it can locate metallic and non-metallic utilities. Utility surveyors tend to prefer using ground-penetrating radar to conduct utility mapping surveys as it offers rapid data acquisition, less operation cost, and high-resolution imagery. . Asia-Pacific is set to undergo substantial gains and project the highest compound annual growth rate for the forecast period. The growth of this region is being driven by developing economies like India, Japan, Singapore, Australia and China.

Market Trends

  • New products that contain improved capabilities have been launched by leading market players. They have taken necessary steps to improve accuracy of devices and overall functionality as well. The vendors are taking an opportunity to develop app-based mapping solutions to ease an engineer’s task with the proliferation of smartphones in the last few years. For instance, in July 2019, Radiodetection, a manufacturer of underground utility mapping tools, launched its Android mapping app compatible with the RF marker locator range and the cable, pipe, or RF marker range. The app uses Bluetooth connectivity to create, in a real-time map of buried utilities.
  • Underground utility mapping can be benefitted through the significant adoption of cloud-based technologies. For instance, in 2019, in a major project in Toronto, a cloud-based data storage and inspection system called Builterra was used to standardize and centralize a considerable amount of inspection data and photos of the existing buried utilities. This cloud-related trend will create more opportunities for this market in the coming years.
  • In April 2020, National Informatics Centre’s (NIC) Utility Mapping division has developed the GIS-based COVID-19 care integration in the OneMap Greater Noida portal for Greater Noida Authority. The newly developed portal enables the Authority to deal with the situation appropriately.
  • For detecting underground utilities, drone manufacturers are developing GPR-enabled drones, which will further create opportunities for the segment in the coming years. For instance, in March 2020, Terra Drone has completed a pilot project with the newly developed drone equipped with a ground-penetrating radar system. GPR-equipped drones can be used at different altitudes and speeds to locate underground utilities at a particular location.
